It has been five years since Tiger Woods last won on the PGA Tour, but his latest outing at the Valspar Championships clearly indicates he is steadily returning to his best form.

Narrowly missing out on the victory at the Florida-based golf course to British star Paul Casey, having been tied for the lead shortly after the start of the final round, Woods’ entire performance was commended by both experts and the golf faithful.

One particular shot has captured the attention of the golf world, with the former world number one sinking a 44-foot putt to end strongly on the back of a brilliant display, despite not finishing at the top.

Suffering from various personal issues in the past few seasons that resonated to the golf course, hampering his professional career as well, Woods believes he is improving in all quarters with time, and the reaction from the spectators after his impressive putt suggests his fans are awaiting to see their star among the elites again.

With the first major of the year coming up soon, the form and fitness of the American ace proves he will be putting up a tough fight against any opposition.

Seeing his immaculate putting skills at Palm Harbor, several imminent personalities took to social media to express their thoughts.

Rick Reilly, Mike Greenberg, Niall Horan, Michael Phelps, Joel BeallHugh Cahill, Jack Butland, Darren Fletcher, and Justin Ray all wrote on Twitter after witnessing the action.

The 14-time major winner acknowleged the admiration from fans at the venue and through the social media across the globe, thanking them for the support and said: “Wow, what an amazing week…people, atmosphere, adrenaline, back nine on Sunday, man I’ve missed this. Getting better. Thank you for all the support!”
